The Mailbox of the Kindred Spirit is on the southern end of Sunset Beach. The mailbox is real. People leave letters, notes, mementos to loved ones that they miss in the mailbox.
The mailbox is the inspiration for my story about Ernie and Melody who meet at a young age at a Golf Club in the mountains of North Carolina where he works and where her mother works. They grow up and grow apart and she moves to Ocean Isle Beach. Eventually he comes to a place where he tries to connect with her again. The mailbox plays an important part.
